Garbisch, Alice (24 MAY 1947)


Miss Alice Esther Garbisch, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Garbisch of Granton, became the bride of Arden Erwin Hinkelmann of Neillsville, son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Hinkelmann of Loyal, at a double ring ceremony read at 2 o’clock Saturday afternoon, May 24, in Zion Evangelical Lutheran church at Granton. The Rev. Leonard Domke officiated.


The church was decorated with a white lattice fence and arch trimmed with apple blossoms.


The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of white frosted marquisette over satin, with long sleeves coming to a point over the wrists, and a long train. Her long lace trimmed veil was caught to heart-shaped headdress, and trimmed with orange blossoms. She carried a bouquet of white Easter lilies, tied with a white satin ribbon.


Miss Violet Garbisch of Milwaukee, a sister of the bride, acted as maid of honor and the bridesmaids were Misses Anita and Leona Hinkelmann, sisters of the groom Edmund Hinkelmann acted as his brother’s best man,, and Leland Garbisch of Milwaukee and Marvin Garbisch served as groomsmen. Walter Hinkelmann of Unity and Alvin Moll of Milwaukee served as ushers.


Misses Evelyn and Marion Winter sang "I Love You Truly" and "Always," accompanied on the church organ by Marion.


The maid of honor wore a gown of yellow ninon over satin and she wore a white floral headdress and carried a bouquet of White carnations. The bridesmaids wore identical gowns of pink and blue frosted marquisette over satin and pink and white floral headdresses. They carried bouquets of pink and white carnations.


A wedding reception was held at the home of the bride’s patents for 75 guests. The home was decorated with white, yellow, pink and blue streamers, and a three tiered White wedding cake topped with a miniature bride and groom, served as a centerpiece for the table.


In the evening a wedding dance and coin shower was held at the Granton village hall.


The bride, a graduate of the Granton high school with the class 0f 1946, is employed as a stenographer in the county judge’s office at Neillsville. The groom, a graduate of the Loyal high school with the class of 1943, is employed on the Don Crothers farm at Neillsville, where the young couple will reside.


The Loyal Tribune extends to the young couple its wishes for happiness.
